During a holiday trip to the beautiful exotic Thai island of Koh Samui my wife and I, both food and wine lovers, went twice to "Namu". "Namu" is the top-restaurant of the modern-chique "W Retreat" at the Northernmost point of the Island. A buggy brings you from the sleek hotel lobby to the restaurant at the beach. Arriving at "Namu" feels more like entering a hip club in Ibiza than a Japanese restaurant in Thailand. Service is friendly although it lacks some of the typical Thai warmth. The quality of the food is great though, a modern, international interpretation of the great Japanse culinary heritage. We started with extremely fresh sushi, including excellent fat tuna belly and great unagi / eel. The pasta with lobster was superb, the sauce both rich and spicy, the quality of the lobster amongst the best ever tasted. We finished once with excellent Waggyu and once with perfect lamb. The drinks-list is rather poor for sake and OK for wine, but the German "Spätburgunder" (Pinot Noir) paired very well with the food.
